Between oceans and archipelagos: Synergies and opportunities for the maritime leaders of Europe

26 March 2019
at the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation

The technological advances in the maritime industry and the career opportunities offered in shipping have historically been among the areas of mutual interest for Greece and Norway.
In this era of change and advancement, in which technological break-throughs, new regulations and geopolitical developments are expected to re-shape the shipping industry, the Greek and Norwegian maritime clusters as shipping and maritime world leaders should share experiences and exchange views.

In this respect, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Athens and Naftika Chronika magazine, under the auspices of MARTECMA are organising a Maritime Conference on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation.

The main aim of the event titled “Between oceans and archipelagos: Synergies and opportunities for the maritime leaders of Europe” is to offer a common ground for mutually beneficial discussions between Greek and Norwegian maritime stakeholders mainly focusing on trends in marine technology, business models and strategies for the future.
